the whole nation realizes it can happen to them. it could happen to newton-- newtown, connecticut, an idyllic community, it can happen anywhere in this country. it doesn't mean it's going to happen, doesn't mean it's a prevalent crime, it isn't. this is not the way most children, god forbid are going to be hurt or injured. other ways to get hurt or injured and we have to pay attention to. this is so horrific and so arbitrary it could happen to any one of us and all of us have this nightmare about our children and that's why i think this whole country is together on this. >> and certainly those parents are going to be second guessing lots of decisions. >> i can't imagine, you know. >> and that's being a father and i can't imagine how you -- i couldn't imagine it during september 11th or many other times how you live with in, horrible. >> those answers are yet to come in the days ahead. we are going to continue our conversation with mayor guiliani in just a bit and continuing coverage of the aftermath of the tragedy in newtown, connecticut just ahead. get married, have a couple of k

in politics, where emotion will pull the logic train. the emotion of what happened in newtown, connecticut, the emotion contained in a week of funerals, we're at the front of a church or synagogue or a mosque, you're going to be very small -- there are going to be very small caskets. t.j., if we still have the picture of jack pinto buried yesterday in newtown, connecticut, buried in his little league uniform, that right there is what is going to change the dialogue for this. people carry around for years pictures of their children in little league uniforms, hockey uniforms, first and second grade school picture. that's the picture, the emotion that will pull this thing. >> if it doesn't, there's a serious problem. i understand the president does -- has a lot to do, when it comes to making sure that our economy doesn't fall off the cliff. there are tens of millions of working americans that know that the fiscal cliff situation needs to be addressed. isn't human nature funny, though, how we need to get moving on this? >> those critical issues you just mentioned, they seem so insignificant. >
's a terrifying situation, obviously for all parents, not even just in newtown and we will see you posted and new information as soon as we get it into our newsroom. bill: a little bit here from the "associated press." according to the superintendent speaking with reporters there at the office in newtown the district hats been on lockdown as a preventative measure. this is important now, the superintendent's secretary says that reports of a shooting are not co confirmed. we'll work through this together and gather information as we can. it just crossed the wires about seven minutes ago. be patient with us as we work through it. you mentioned a number of people escorted out of the building, perhaps that is the case. this bit of information from the superintendent's office -- alisyn: is comforting, that's comforting if it's not confirmed, where we're getting our information it's just a very tiny blurb from a website there that says that police are reporting a number of injured parties. let's hope that in the confusion of these early reports that that is not accurate, but, again, it's impossible to
and they can't get up. on social issues and now fiscal issues even more. >> you have newtown and the absolute fear to speak out -- not against the nra -- to speak out against survivalists. to speak out against people that want to buy assault weapon, to speak out against people -- i mean, great. if you really do -- if you believe that james madison wrote the bill of rights so people would have the ability to squeeze off that many rounds and have these extended magazine clips, if that's your america living it, that's your america. god bless you. good luck with that. if you really believe the federal government's coming, you're going to kick down your doors, what are you going to do? are you going to shoot that weapon up at the drone? lots of luck. it's not going to help you. but that's where they're positioning themselves. they don't speak out against the slaughter of 20 young children and doing anything about that because they're afraid they may offend sur vooifrlivivalists an rushing out going to walmart and buying assault weapons. they're not going to stand up to so many of these extreme for
that vice president biden will spearhead his administration's response to the newtown shooting. the president is not expected to go into detail on policy decisions. the national rifle association has broken it's silence issuing a statement that reads in part this. the nra is prepared to offer meaningful contributions to help make sure this never happens again. that's significant. >> can i stop for a second there? if progressives, if moderates, if conservatives that are concerned about these magazine clips and assault weapons, if they want to feel self-righteous and scream and yell, they can do it and we won't get a deal. this is like the fiscal cliff. in the end it's like in "lincoln" with the 13th amendment. if the nra comes out and says something like that, instead of everybody going, now that blood's on your hands, you know what? guess what? feel self-righteous. you can save lives, or you can feel self-righteous. beat your chest like jim and tammy faye bakker if that's how you sleep at night. if that gets you through the night, go ahead. i tell you what, the art of politics,
ownership in our area was important in the aftermath of the newtown shootings. >>> starbucks, our very own starbucks, is urging washington to come together. this ad running in today's "washington post" and tomorrow's "new york times" highlights starbucks' new initiative, calling on elected officials to unite on the solution to the fiscal cliff. employees in the washington area starbucks will write the message on customers' cups, urging leadership from congress. aol is also joining the effort by sharing the come together message across its network of hyperlocal websites called patch. you know, this is really a terrific thing. it's a lot of extra work for the employees in all the starbucks, but it's a terrific thing just to remind people -- not that they need reminding -- that we are represented by incompetence in washington. >> it's true. it's very howard schultz, the ceo, who has used his platform of one of the largest companies in the world to push a message or do what's good for the greater good. a couple years ago during the jobs crisis, if you remember, he did a program where you could

tragedy at newtown, connecticut and the picture, the first grade picture has been released and just drives home the incredible loss and tragedy. this was one classroom and now the name, vicky soto's class, the 27-year-old teacher who had the zest for life who was killed. and many cite her as a hero and half of the class was saved and the story goes, we don't know, this is reported by six and seven year olds and the story was vague, she apparently hid them all in a closet and when she was killed, when she confronted the gunman and told them that she had sent them to the auditorium, she was killed and when some of the kids heard the gunshots, they ran out and they were killed. >> clayton: and olivia engel, apparently this photo was released by olivia's mother and appeared in the new york post this morning and as we continue to talk about what unfolded that day and of course, you look at the horrible images and many people were reminded what happened and unfolded in columbine, of course. then on friday, this was exacerbated this discussion about gun control and whether or not there should be
saw in newtown. those kinds of tragedies. as i said before we see tragedies every single night in this country on the streets of this city and d.c. and chicago and l.a. and other -- >> can you give me a perspective on how powerful the nra really is in the republican party because we had michael bloomberg, mayor of new york city, on "meet the press" last week. he said they are not that powerful. it is -- they are just -- ed rendell, former governor of pennsylvania. he got elected three times and said they are a piper tiger. >> i agree with the mayor. i said this for a very long time. the myth of the power of the nra is much greater than the actual power of the nra. you have to remember in -- talking about grover norquist and pledge or nra and -- their views, and -- you know, there are a lot of members of congress who are ideologically lined with the views of the organization. less about what the nra can do to them than they agree on most issues. they are getting that support. but if you go out and speak clearly to your constituents about what your views are on the issues and --
told the reporter rifles similar to the one used in newtown were expected to double in price in the next 90 days. i just finished reading that article. pretty unbelievable. >>> a democratic president at a time of political upheaval passes a major gun-control act in the wake of several shooting tragedies. that may sound like president obama's plan for the next term, but it actually happened 44 years ago. >> today we begin to disarm the criminals and the careless and the insane. and all of our people who are deeply concerned in this country about law and order should hail this day. and in our democracy, crime control is a community problem, and we would not have it any other way, for the other way would be the police state and all of its tragic consequences. >> joining me now is the director of the lbj presidential library. mark, welcome. glad to have you. >> nice to be here. >> let's talk about president johnson and what led him to pass the gun control act. >> well, there were a number of tragic circumstances throughout the year 1968, among which were the assassinations of mar
and washington working together, negotiating on this bill and what happened in newtown. but in middle america, nothing happens in a bubble. people are still shattered by that. and anybody that is dragging their feet, fighting, seeming petty less than a week after -- i'm sorry, this is the worst tragedy i can think of as far as just shattering the soul of this country. i say since 9/11, in my lifetime. 9/11 and this. then i guess you'd have to go back to kennedy's assassination. i can't believe how shaken -- people are just talking about this all the time. they're looking at washington squabbling over numbers. and since they've already decided on the big issues, they're just thinking, they're so dysfunctional. and whoever gets the blame for this, it's in big trouble politically. >> no question. and it's not just on the fiscal stuff. it's on other things, too. i mean, you know, i thought your incredibly eloquent statement last week reflects what a lot of people feel including a lot of people who have had reservations before about doing something. that fight's just about to begin. the high water

. >> so he wears this ammunition belt a few short days after what happened at newtown elementary school and i mean, the thought process that must go through your head and go on campus and not alert security about it, but wearing a full ammunition belt, his mom shall it was for fun, they were fake, it wasn't for real. >> dave: ha, ha, real funny. >> clayton: how does anyone know that. >> juliet: the friends say the belt is a fashion statement. he constantly wears it, it's a punk thing. >> dave: that's cool. >> juliet: a stylish thing. and we had a counselor on and a psychotherapist. >> you could get away with that 20, 30 years ago, but particularly the sensitive nation of everything going on in our nation after the connecticut shooting three days after that, you've got to have a better common sense, a belt bullets, no justification, i look at this as a parental thing. as a society we've somehow kept 18 to 24-year-old men and women, like a perennial type warp of adolescence and time for us as parents to start holding our kids accountable at a young age into adolescence and young adult hoo
state may start arming school principals to protect students from attacks like the one in newtown, connecticut. attorney general in arizona, tom horn, offering a proposal that would allow a school principal or another staff member to be trained to use a firearm. his plan would require a change in state law. currently allows only police officers to carry firearms on school grounds. >> we would provide the training in marksmanship, in judgment. there would be simulations, to be sure they're well-trained to handle an emergency. and then they would be able to have a gun at school, locked up in a very secure place. >> i don't want anymore firearms in the school whether it is locked in a safe or trained person to me, in my personal opinion would be safer because they can't be everywhere. >> a normal person not used to the stress of say, a armed gunman may not be able to respond the same way. gregg: if the attorney general's proposal is approved by state lawmakers, participation would be entire tirely optional. patti ann: yet another fiscal cliff concern. the price of milk, if congress d
